Borage

Borage, aka Starflower, aka Bee Bread, contains high levels of calcium & iron, potassium, zinc, B & C vitamins, and beta carotene. It has very high levels of gamma linoleic acid, an important essential fatty acid. Borage is anti-inflammatory, helping with arthritis, and reduces itch & dryness associated with eczema & other skin disorders.

Borage is used to restore the adrenal glands to their natural balance, which in turn creates a calmer body & mind. Its natural soothing effects lifts the spirits & softens the nerves. Borage works well to ease depression & mood swings.

Honey

Honey is great for your skin. When added to soaps, it’s hardly noticeable when you are using it in the shower or washing your hands in the sink – it’s not sticky at all and leaves no discernible trace. Honey is packed with antioxidants, which are known to help fight signs of ageing, pollution, and unhealthy lifestyle habits from showing on your skin. It helps skin glow through its excellent moisturizing properties. Honey is also great for those with problem skin – it’s antibacterial which helps with acne prevention and treatment, and it helps open up the pores in order to clean and unclog. Read More: Honey

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil is an excellent tonic to help relieve stress, anxiety, and nervous conditions. It is often recommended as a sleep-aid, as an alternative to insomnia treatment. It helps with headaches & depression, relieve pain, disinfects the skin, encourages blood circulation, & aids with respiratory issues.

 

What Does "Saponified" Mean?

What Does “Saponified” Mean?

Saponification is the chemical reaction used in the soap making process. When the oils and fats are combined with lye (a strong alkali) they are called saponified. At the end of the process the lye is all gone, and you are left with just soap. To learn more about this, have a look at my blog post on the subject.

 

About “Filler” Oils

About “Filler” Oils

Cheaper oils are often used as a “filler” but I don’t use them because they don’t add much nutrient value to the soap.

I don’t use palm oil in any of my products, since its production is harmful to the environment, destroying critical habitat for many endangered species, as well as being linked with the eviction of forest-dwelling peoples. Find out more here.

I only use high quality oils and butters that are filled with beneficial nutrients for the skin. Learn more about this on my blog.
